Confirming the death of the founder of one of the greatest family music band, Taj Jackson, a grandson of Joe Jackson, tweeted: Disgusted by some of the comments I’m reading about my grandpa Joe by those who didn’t even know him. Please don’t just regurgitate what you were spoon fed by the press. Joe was loved by our ENTIRE family and our hearts are in pain. Let us grieve without the nastiness.#ripthehawk”
